Sometimes we come across a blog that is so good that we just have to share it. We will highlight a few of our favorites each month here on the blog, but don't forget to see what else we are sharing on Twitter and Facebook.
Ongoing Magento 1 Support
Magento released a statement on May 30 addressing some rumors surrounding Magento 1 end of life and Magento 2. The statement hopes to assure Magento 1 users that just because end of life is coming doesn’t mean that support will immediately end.
“Magento 1 has been and will continue to be supported for the foreseeable future. We have no intention of denying access to our world-class software and know your business relies on Magento to drive growth and differentiation for your brand.”
As Magento CEO Mark Lavelle clarified on Twitter, this statement means that Magento will be announcing extended support for Community Edition.
The statement also says that Magento is committing to a minimum 18-month notice before any changes are made to support levels.
New Graduates: These are the Unspoken Rules of the Workplace No One Tells You
With graduation season winding down, plenty of lucky new graduates will be joining the real world as they start their first “real” jobs. But the workplace is a very different environment than college classrooms or even internship experiences. Luckily, Fast Company recently released a list of tips for these newbies to be aware of as they join the rest of us in the workforce.

For motivated students, going “above and beyond” is a no-brainer. But Fast Company warns against this in your first job, as those who push themselves to do as much as possible can spread themselves too thin and neglect their original responsibilities.
It can be tough to shed the student mindset that so many new employees have held for the previous 12-16 years, but this article is like a cheat sheet for fitting in at the office. Check out the six other tips in the full post.
